This home, at 70 La Salle Avenue in Piedmont, has so much appeal.  If you if you enjoy being close to everything that the Bay Area has to offer, yet still look forward to returning to serene canyon views, and the warmth of the trees and gardens that this home features, you may want to consider it seriously.  There are 4 bedrooms and 3 baths here in a roomy 3627 sf +/- of space.

The concept of the Mid-Century Modern home was to attempt to bring the light and color from the outside gardens to the home's inner core.  This concept is well met in this residence.  

This bright and cheerful living room brings the above concept home.  Note the spacious front windows that draw the patio light and color in.  The front patio is a pleasant place to enjoy an afternoon cup of coffee or the reading of a book, and its location down the front steps and behind the pleasant trees and garden, ensure a privacy that is ideal.  

A wider angle of the living area reveals handsome beamed ceilings, tile floors, and an engaging and welcoming floor plan.  

A  view of the home when turning right,  reveals a very impressive brick fireplace with an imposing surround and mantel that most certainly anchors the  whole room.  What an elegant showpiece to an already handsome space.  

 The two white paired chairs seen just inside the front entrance are placed next to another outside living space.  Stepping through the handsome sliding glass doors, there is a very serene spot for a wide variety of potential uses.  

What a delightful mixture of calm and beauty.  A sheltered overhangs protects one from the sun and rain, thus allowing many hours outside.  A set of stairs to the right leads to another similar spot one floor level down.  

Not every meal needs to be patio casual, however.  It is just for this reason that this handsome formal dining room has been created.  Continuing the architectural design and colors of the front room, this room offers warm wooden floors, beamed ceilings, and adds an extra twist with charming wainscoting trim halfway up the walls.  

Just off the dining room is this irresistible, and very spacious, kitchen that is highlighted with gleaming subway style tiles throughout its length that contributes to the black and white theme from the handsome appliances.  Be sure to note the abundance of light in every area of the room.

Additional pluses include the amazing amount of storage and workspace that will just add to the appeal and ease of meal preparation.  

An especially desirable aspect of this home is this very spacious family room that is adaptable to so many varied uses.  It is exceptionally spacious, and can be used as currently configured, or divided up into office or work space, or a media room.  An additional plus is that it affords direct access to the outside patio through exceedingly inviting sliding glass doors.  

Just outside these sliding glass doors is yet another quiet area for reading, entertaining friends, or just relaxing with a good book.  


There are four bedrooms available, three are shown below for your review.  Generous window space, garden views and wall to wall carpeting makes this room below particularly attractive.  

An equally appealing second bedroom continues the theme of pleasant wall colors, views to the welcoming outside, and flexibility of design.

Still another illustrates that even though the room is a bit smaller, it is still equally attractive and can accommodate many needs and uses.

There are multi-level patio areas in the backyard, giving you a pleasing variety of choices for your consideration.  Below is the exterior patio area just outside the living room.  Note the sturdy shade trees and sizable wooden deck areas. 

In this view of the rear of the home, you can see the two levels of outdoor entertainment space.  The first level here is seen up the stairs in front of the three windows, and, as indicated, is off the first floor.  The second level is seen by moving downwards.  Here you will find the grey patio table and chair set that is found just off the family room. Even more space is evidenced with the white wooden chairs and coffee table.  

This impressive home, as with all Piedmont homes, is just moments  away from the popular Montclair village shops and stores, and, Rockridge, Grand Lake and Lakeshore shops and restaurants are close by.  Freeways 580 and 13 can take you easily to downtown Oakland, San Francisco or Contra Costa counties.  

I have lived in this area all my life, and I am well aware of all the amenities and charm that Piedmont and Oakland have to offer.  I am also aware of the residential opportunities that are of value.  This home is being offered for sale for $ 1,995,000.  I would welcome the opportunity to show you this home or any others that might interest you.  I can be reached at (510) 517-6280.
